While the VF3 is compatible with a variety of Olympus bodies, neither it or its two cousins the VF2 and the VF4 are compatible with ANY Panasonic body.

GX1 is only compatible with the Panasonic LVF2.

Nope. But the Panasonic LVF2 is.

Got one for my GX1 @ B&H for $160. It's the same resolution as the Oly VF2, BTW.
